Epic Games set for expansion

Epic Games is planning to double the size of its HQ, according to a report in North Carolina’s News Observer, following the $1.57m acquisition of a new office.

According to the report "Epic is in the early stages of planning an office building that would at least double the space on its campus".

"We’ve pretty much run out of space here," VP Mark Rein comments.

Epic has been expanding over the past two years, and plans to keep growing, beyond its current head count of 94, for the next two. The expansion of the facilities will allow for Epic to house more games testers.

"The feedback loop is better," said Rein. "We can sit in a room and say, ‘Hey, here’s a bug I saw. Can you recreate this and tell me what you think is causing it?’ They’re constantly playing through the game and testing every little level, and it takes a lot of people to test a game properly."
